Helsinki is the capital of Finland
Helsinki was a quick stop for us as we departed from the Queen Victoria Cunard cruise ship. We took a coach straight to the center and as we drove past street markets and other non tourist destinations I was reminded that I could not wander freely or self explore due to being with toddler that day and on a strict time limit with the ships itinerary.
Taking the time to sit and write this post has actually jogged my tired memory and reminded me how much I enjoyed our short time in Helsinki visually. It was fun to see old trams and learn about the history of the harbor. I remember stopping at a street bar and ordering a glass of champagne in the sunshine whilst enjoying watching the world go by with my hubby as the baby napped. Little moments like that really put their mark on excursions.
